Hello everyone,

From the book Hig Your Hater by Jay Baer:

There’s even a very large discussion board for plastic surgery. It’s called RealSelf.
Every day on RealSelf, members post more than twelve hundred photos, either of themselves or of body parts they wish to emulate. And to date, the platform has accumulated more than a million comments and answers from plastic surgeons.

Does "body parts they wish to emulate" mean body parts they wish to change/improve?

Thank you.

    No, it means body parts they wish to copy. Someone might post a picture of a pop star's nose, for instance, saying that they'd like their nose to look like the pop star's.
